panetta, no different than anybody else in the obama administration. >> senator kerrey, you have been in politics all these years. what is the vehemence about? is it the sense he's just too much to the left of the right wing? what is the new standard for middle east politics in being secretary of defense for the united states? >> well, that's a good question. i think it's going to be proven in his testimony that he's a very strong supporter of the united states being a strong ally of israel. i mean, that's really the bottom line. are you willing to be an ally of israel, yes or no, and he's going to answer emphatically yes. his votes and his record confirm that. does he have disagreements from time to time with the prime minister of israel? the answer is yes. but, you know, i have disagreements from time to time with the president of the united states, but that doesn't mean i don't support the united states of america. so, i mean, i think the representations that he's going to be terrible for israel i just think is wrong. and i think when he gets before the armed services committee, i

of the obama administration, perhaps there is some room for optimism on the national security front. it portrays a better picture of guantÁnamo bay and this is one problem. there is the drone program, the military program and a cia program. impunity, torture, secrecy. wiretapping and all pieces in the puzzle as it presents a bad picture of america. i'm hoping we can pull those pieces apart and put them back together. the closing of guantÁnamo, in my view, creates a new guantÁnamo someone else must address the underlying issue of indefinite detention. on the 10th anniversary there was a lot of media attention and coverage about the 10th anniversary of guantÁnamo bay. you won't see it on google news and once you what to look for it. there is an op-ed in "the new york times". it talks about an evil that the military commissions were. so it's been very interesting over time watching this process and frustrating. i think closing guantÁnamo is the right step to take, but we also need to take a look at how we got guantÁnamo together. i don't know the bigger fiscal waste in guantÁnam

administration and then under the first year of the obama administration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back home saying, 'do this, do that, do this.' and it's not climate change." so until they feel that they have to a
the obama administration as politico points out today, even reviving this dispute over leaks or alleged leaks out of the white house. are we not paying enough attention to brennan when, again, there were actual protests outside the white house yesterday regarding his nomination? >> well, in terms of the confirmation process, what doesn't -- protests outside the white house matter a lot less than protests inside capitol hill. it's just the nature of the beast and how they get confirmed. i think it's interesting that it first brennan was kind of seen as a sure thing and now maybe not so much. a little bit of criticism but i doubt the level of rancor will be anything like to see in the chuck hagel hearings. that's where the big show is going to be. >> you have writers, though, making a great point. making the point as a progressive, as a liberal that perhaps here we are at a time when questions about torture or alleged torture and interrogation has gone by the wayside for the political battle and people complaining about chuck hagel and to be confirmed or not, republican, democrats that i
them at the cia. brennan shaped the obama administration's policy on drones, using them more often and with more lethal results. these two questions certainly will be coming up at john brennan's confirmation hearingings at a time when challenging cabinet picks is becoming routine. >> used to just be supreme court justices who inspired these sort of partisan free for alls. now it is bleeding down into a president's cabinet picks as well. >> i want to bring back tom juneau, writes for esquire magazine. we talked so extensively about drones. wrote this phenomenal piece in esquire back in the summer. question number one being, you know, during the confirmation hearings, do you think it will be more of a defending, that john brennan will be defending his use of drones or distancing himself from it? >> i don't know if he has to defend it. it seems -- there really is no force within the congress who is anti-drone who i think is -- i think that this is an opportunity to make him defend the drone program, but i don't know if that's going to come up. >> you don't think people in your piece w
is set for this week. >>> this week we will learn what the obama administration wants to do about guns in the wake of the connecticut shooting. vice president biden is is putting the finishing touches on a list of proposals. tomorrow he is expected to meet with members of the house of representatives. all of this as people flock to gun shows. >> the president of the national rifle association says the nra has enough votes at the moment to block a ban on military-style rifles. >> the likely hood is they are not going to get an assault weapons ban through coming. >> joe biden is set to liver his proposals for tougher laws to president obama this week. she expected to recommend reinstituting the assault rifle ban. one was passed in 1994 and expired 10 years later with its effectiveness still debated. universal background checks are required only when a gun is purchased at a retailer. new checks would close the so-called gun show loophole and go even further requiring a check for any private sale of a gun. and limiting magazine clips. some call it a war on amo banning high capacity clips,
. the obama administration has already used up the easiest savings in the defense budget, but it hasn't taken on personnel costs. as a veteran and a former head of the u.s.o., hagel might have the clout to bring military pay raises in line with what's happening in the rest of the economy. >> and when people talk about, oh, what the impact of this or that on military families, "you say, wait a second, i saved the u.s.o. from bankruptcy. so i know military families." and so, i think that is one area he can work on that has been politically toxic for any of his predecessors. >> reporter: there are still big savings to be found in cutting weapons systems-- in particular, the nation's nuclear arsenal. reducing the number of nuclear submarines, bombers and missiles could cut the defense budget by $10 billion a year. and a republican secretary of defense may give the president additional cover to seek those cuts, which is why defense companies are worried. >> the defense industry understands that military budgets are going to continue to be cut until a new threat comes along. what they want, to borr
. the obama administration has often stepped in. directly funding the organization itself, o threatening to withhold federal funding unless they refund the decision. >> every time we defund on state level the president steps in and says over my dead body. >> there is a legal battle in texas where the state demanded none of the funding go to planted parenthood and that would leave poor women without healthcare. monday, the human services commission announced it locked in more than enough doctors for the people depended on the planned parenthood for checkups. >> bret: thank you. survivor of the tucson shooting ram page is taking on the gun lobby. gabrielle giffords seds she and astronaut husband mark kelly will raise mup for gun control efforts. giffords was shot in the had in a constituent meeting two years ago. sick people were killed. high-ranking nra official will attend a meeting of vice president biden gun task force this week. president obama asked biden's group to provide recommendations on how to avoid mass shootings like the one that left 20 chirp dead last month in newtown, conn
been, those two worlds. >> when you look at what the obama administration did for wall street, we have a story about the bailouts and what egregious handout they were and how they are still going on. the bank secretly got billions and billions in secret loans from the feds, basically zero percent interest rate, didn't tell their shareholders that. their ceos were busy buying and selling stocks, so there's a question of insider trading that was going on off the bailout, and none of those people have been touched or looked at. so, you know, wall street got this huge handout, and yet during the election they came out 5-1 in terms of financial contributions against obama. there's a real disconnect in terms of their own world view. if this has been a republican administration, they would have been ecstatic. there's politics going on here as well. >> we were talking about this in the break, we played the ad aig has been running on the air, which is thank you, america, thank you, america, thank you, america. some sort of brand management, or attempt thereof, but the fact they are engaged in t
administration has stepped up the use of drones overseas to target suspected terrorists. president obama's nomination of john brennan to be the next cia director suggests that trend is likely to continue. brennan, a strong proponent of drones as the president's chief counterterrorism advisor. for more on how the u.s. drone program works let's get to chief washington correspondent james rosen. he is live for us at the state department. james? >> reporter: jon, good morning. this program presents a consistent headache for the diplomats in this building and who must frequently contend with complaints from afghan and pakistani officials who say these drones all too often wind up killing innocent civilians instead of terrorists the drone program is one of the national security initiatives that president obama inherited from the bush administration and one which the current commander-in-chief has dramatically expanded. for all his criticism of president bush during the 2008 campaign over his conduct of the war on terror president obama has largely kept in place if not enhanced the architecture

. there is different variations whether it was directly an obama administration plot or agents loosely tied with the liberal movement or even george soros. the common thread is that the tragedy was a false flag operation in order to make the country willing to give up their guns. in other words, this tragedy would happen and then we would have a discussion about gun control as we are now and then this would lay the ground work for the government to come in and take guns for some kind of future tyranical regime. >> the internet has allowed this stuff to ignite in a way never has. there have always been conspiracy theories. this has allowed more isolated people to find each other, right sf. >> absolutely. one of the chapters in my book i talk about how the internet has turbo charged the conspiracy movement. the big challenge used to be getting the word out. now, they don't try going to the mainstream media but they publish it on their website and can create their own echo chambers of paranoid individuals that share the same distress. the majority of the sandy hook revolve around gun control b

an obama administration plot or agents loosely tied with the liberal movement or george soros. the common thread is that the tragedy was a false flag operation to make the country give up their guns. in other words, this tragedy would happen and we would have a discussion about gun control as we are now. then they would lay the ground work for the government to take guns. possibly for some kind of future tyranical regime. >> the internet allowed all this stuff to kind of ignite in a way that it never has. there also conspiracy theories. this is a lo this allowed more people to find each other. >> the internet turbo charged the movement because the big challenge for conspiracy theorists used to be getting the word out. respectable journalists wouldn't touch their stories. they wouldn't bother, but publish it on their website and they create paranoid individual who is share the same distress. just to correct something, it is true that the majority of the theories revolve around gun control. they believe it is an israeli and iranian controlled. >> how do the israelis get involved in this? >>
, new talk from the obama administration that the u.s. could decide to pull all remaining troops out of afghanistan by the end of next year. the deputy national adviser for strategic communication would not rule that out during a conference call with reporters. >> that would be an option we would consider because again the president does not view the negotiations as having a goal of keeping u.s. troops in afghanistan. >> the pentagon said thousands of troops may be needed beyond 2014 to contain al qaeda who currently has 66,000 troops there. all of this comes with president obama scheduled to meet with hamid karzai friday at the white house. karzai is in washington and will meet with a group of senators including mitch mcconnell. joining us is retired four-star ynl and vote vets.org who served twice in i wack. thank you very much for joining us. general, i will start off with you. many intricate or believe that the president's choice in john kerry and check hagel indicate withdrawing more troops and leaving far fewer in that country and as we move forward with other possible conflict

they believe that the obama administration is less interested in protecting children and more interested in attacking the second amendment. so the nra says that the white house is set on blaming the actual weapon rather than getting tougher on the person using it. here's some of that. >> we feel very strongly that gun crime needs to be prosecuted vigorously and that is not happening under this administration. the president and the vice president on the other hand blame everything on firearms, and we know enough and we've got a little experience with firearms and what works and what doesn't work, to think that what they're talking about is essentially cosmetic feel-good legislation that will not prevent another newtown, much as they would like to do that. martha: there is that as background here. chris wallace joins me right now, anchor of "fox news sunday." good morning, chris. good to have you with us. >> good morning to you, martha. martha: i want to listen joe biden as well and listen closely what he said. everyone is trying to figure out this morning what the white house can accompli
